Hello everyone, I am trying to get some ideas about other modern lace dresses that have some sparkle. I really like A line and fit and flare dresses, and I like the look of a satin top that is ruched to one side with the lace on the bottom. I like the look of the Maggie Sottero Primavera but I do not like the corded lace. I also like the Eden Black label 030, but I have some concerns about the boning in the bodice not sitting properly. It didn’t when I tried it on (although the dress was too big for me) and it isn’t in the picture on the model either. Any thoughts on this particular problem?
Overall, I’m also wondering if anyone has any suggestions about dresses that might be similar to these that I haven’t yet found? Here are the links to the two I am talking about:
Any suggestions are appreciated!

My dress sounds like what you’re looking for!
It’s Sophia Tolli’s marielena. There’s tons of sparkle on the top and through the bodice with over all lace that becomes spread out on the tulle skirt. The only thing is there’s no Satin on it.
Here are a few pictures!
Take note that the images really don’t show off how much it sparkles! Also the last picture is me but the dress was 4 sizes too big and needed to be steamed.

You should check out Sophia Tolli’s other dresses as well. She has a few options that sound like what you’re looking for Such as Cashmere, Primrose, Clove, Babette, Gilda, and many more!

Check out Wtoo’s “Jemma.” That is my dress! I knew I wanted lace, but never thought I’d want to be a “sparkly” bride (not a very “blingy” kinda gal)… but when I tried on Jemma, not only did I love the lace, but it has the subtlest hint of shimmer throughout, it’s beautiful! It glistens just enough in the sun, not too overwhelming.

@Honu: I really like some of the Sophia Tolli designs. I’ve never even heard of them before! Does anyone know quality and price range for their gowns? I did a quick search online, and it looks like $1-2 k… The price range I’m trying to stick in is $1-1.5 k., so that seems like a viable option. Thank you for all the recommendations!

@SarahSea14: From what I’ve heard she use to be a designer for Maggie Sottero and then Ventured out on her own a while back. You’ll see a bit if similarity.
My dress was 1300$ CND. The quality is the same as Allure and Maggie dresses. She just has a way of making all the curves look great!
You should find a salon in your area that carries her and try on a few.
Edit to add:
This is me in Gilda to give oyu an idea of what she looks like on a real bride. Keep in mide again that it’s huge on me.

Anyone interested in the Primavera Dress by maggie sottero?? Mine was altered and I never got the chance to wear it. My ex canceled my wedding on me 2 weeks before my special day and now I have a dress for no reason. So upset. Just picked it up today from the bridal store.

You could check out Allure too. I had an allure dress, and It was pretty affordable as far as lace dresses go!
